When Wally's Flash series started DC dropped "The" from the title like Barry's had done. Years later they changed it back so Wally's run went from "Flash" to "The Flash". And that was still the next volume. Add to that the confusion that the first 104 issues that Barry's run extended from was actually "Flash Comics", which wasn't actually Jay Garrick's solo title. Flash Comics 1-104 was an anthology comic like Action, More Fun or All-American Comics. Jay was only one strip among several in the title. Jay's ACTUAL title was All-Flash which ran from 1-32. In retrospect, DC should have started Barry's run with #33 and not #105. But 105 sounded more impressive.

So long story short, I have no problem counting The Green Lantern as the next official volume of GL.
